The biggest event in Mirfield’s calendar is just around the corner.

Stunning aerial acrobatics and fun-filled animal shows will be among the main attractions at this year’s Mirfield Show.

Thousands of people are expected to flock to the Huddersfield Road show ground on Sunday where there will be more than 60 stalls and thousands of exhibits.

International performers Above and Beyond will thrill crowds with a show featuring flying trapeze, rope, silks, hoops, swinging and acrobatics at up to 35 feet in the air.

And agricultural entertainer Bob Hogg will take to the main ring with two entertaining animal displays.

Other attractions will include the Panache Cheerleaders, a mini zoo and meerkats, the ATC Band, zorb balls, an under-fives soft play area, children’s rides, dry stone walling, an owl display, donkey rides, archery and Knottingley Silver Band.

Gates open at 8.30am. Entry to the show is free for children and £5 for adults on the day.
